We stayed at The Parks during the Easter weekend. Located in a quiet suburb, next to the park, it is easily within walking distance of the main centre (15-20 mins walk). We were greeted by Sarah, who was very friendly and informative. The room we had was great; spacious and nicely decorated, with a sofa, lcd tv with ipod dock and dvd and full tea/coffee facilities. Bearing in mind the freezing conditions outside, it was always lovely and warm! The en-suite was a good size, as well as being modern and spotless. We were on the top floor, which meant it was quiet and relaxing. We had breakfast some days, which was good quality and delicious (proper full English cooked to order!). Some nights we had drinks in the bar, which was very comfortable and with a good selection of ales and wines! The owner Tim was very approachable and knowledgable of the local area. My husband and I really enjoyed our break here and would definitely stay again, it's great quality accommodation and the owners are clearly doing a fantastic job.

We were a party of 20 and we stayed for 3 weeks at the parks. Tim and Sarah are really nice hosts. They did a lot to make it as comfortable as possible for all of us. The rooms are big and the bed is really cozy. It's a nice place for a stay in Torquay. The city centre isn't far away u either take the bus which leaves right out the door or u walk along the bay.

My partner and I have just returned from a weekend at The Parks and will definitely be returning.
Tim and Sarah could not be more attentive and helpful and the hotel is very comfortable, especially the bar area with its huge leather sofas.
The hotel is well positioned, out of the main town but only a short walk away from busy shops bars and restaurants.

Stayed here over Christmas with family.
Everything was of a high standard and breakfasts were out of this world.
Nice quiet place to stay, but walking distance from the town, also a bus stop 20 mtrs from the hotel.
The owners recommended good places to eat, and even gave us some vouchers for buy one get one free offers in the local Italian.

My husband and I, and various family members have been coming to The Parks for our annual Christmas stay for years. Tim and Sarah are welcoming and attentive hosts. The hotel is warm and comfortable and is nicely located in a quiet area but 2mins walk and you're on the seafront. I would always choose to stay here.

We rang the owners direct to talk through which room we wanted ( they are all very different )
We chose a 1st fool room with King size bed, settee and bath and shower.
Rooms were very well kept and very clean. The Guest house in also in a quiet area of town away from the main roads, but still easy access to town, bus stops and train station.
( our car didn't move over the 3 nights )
weather was kind to us and we were out most of the time, but did manage a night cap on our last night from the well stocked bar.
Breakfasts were excellant and we only needed to eat again at Tea time ( no lunch )
All in all, VERY GOOD and highly recommended, we will be staying again.

Room Tip: Direct call will always get the best deal !
